INTJ Personality Type & Traits
paradox INTJ Data 1 Comment July 29, 2018 July 29, 2018 3 Minutes INTJs’ Relationship with Darkness “I’m only telling you this because I feel like you won’t judge me.” ~Most people when confiding in me Which is quite an interesting phenomenon, considering the INTJ stereotype of being arrogant, judgmental, and narrow-minded. The INTJ personality type’s signature strength is deep perception. Otherwise known as “the mastermind,” the INTJ is naturally attuned to “the big picture” and cannot help but see how everything is interconnected. ... This data is then kindly forwarded to Ni, which tries to make sense of it, like assembling the pieces of a puzzle ... The problem is that people issues can sap their energy, unless that people issue is an intellectual discussion or robust debate; however if it is chitchat and more everyday issues the INTJ will prefer to withdraw and go back to thinking, designing, driving for closure, excelling at analysing masses of complex data and coming up with genuinely ... The typical INTJ female is a confident and independent woman who doesn’t need a partner to make her whole. She’s perfectly happy to be on her own. Actually, she’d rather be alone than in a restricting relationship. Growing up, the INTJ teenager will rebel against what she considers to be unfair and unjust. For an INTJ, there is no such thing as data separate from the person holding that data. That is to say, our perceptions will always color the information we carry and so data is never clean. This is why an INTJ will frequently counter an inquiry for a piece of data with the question, “Why do you want to know?” For the INTJ who values empirical data and proof to such a strong degree, moving forward on an epiphany or insight seems counter to their pragmatic outward persona. It’s a paradox that makes them all the more mysterious and intriguing! INTJs May Seem Cold on the Outside, But They Develop Astounding Empathy INTJ personalities tend to not give praise for a job that’s well done because it was an expected outcome that was already planned for in the first place. In order to decompress from a difficult day, one of the most common coping and entertainment options for INTJ leaders is to play video games or work on a computer. An Architect (INTJ) is a person with the Introverted, Intuitive, Thinking, and Judging personality traits. These thoughtful tacticians love perfecting the details of life, applying creativity and rationality to everything they do. INTJ Values and Motivations. INTJs are perceptive about systems and strategy, and often understand the world as a chess board to be navigated. They want to understand how systems work, and how events proceed: the INTJ often has a unique ability to foresee logical outcomes. #2 – INTJs Get Hunches Out of “Nowhere”, INTPs Get Hunches Stemming from Objective Data. An INTJ takes a shower in the morning and suddenly gets an “aha!” moment of realization. He (or she) jumps out of the shower, gets to their computer, writes down their idea, analyzes it, and then tries to figure out how they came to their conclusion.

2020.09.16 04:45 PlantKillr365Help with school report on Veganism
I'm posting here (among other places) to try to determine if there is a correlation between personality type and being Vegan. You contribution would be greatly appreciated! XD https://forms.gle/yzLGXo1hgaiojvZGA ------------------ PS: If you don't know your personality type you can find it out here! https://www.16personalities.com/ Thank you! :) ------------------ Update 9/17/2020:
Alright the results are in! Turns out that according to the poll (151 votes as of this writing) INFP edges out a majority with 26.5%. INFJ trails closely behind with a solid 23.2%. INTP rounds out the top 3 with a strong 13.2%. You can probably draw your own conclusions from here, but do keep in mind that reddit might have an overrepresentation of INxx users. Also, it seems that the 'F' trait takes priority over other similar types, which might have something to do with having empathy take center stage for reasons why a given person is vegan (rather than "more logical leaning" reasons such as healthcare and the environment). I was surprised that INFP garnered the majority, as I would have expected INFJ to take the lead due to their combination of feeling and organization. INFJ has the impetus derived from their emotions for animals (F), and the structure to be able to maintain veganism (J). It might be assumed that the INFP's pure emotional motivation is enough for them overcome their less organized 'P' function, or that INFP's are overrepresented in this subset. The results are definitely small enough for the latter to be the case.
So this data is great, however it's obviously biased. But don't take my word for it, let it speak for itself! To this end, we want to determine if our data is skewed. See below link for details: http://www.applied-survey-methods.com/weight.html In order to accomplish this, we need the general population statistics. The Myers Briggs website includes these percentages, but alas, they add up to 100.3 % due to them rounding up to the nearest tenth decimal place :( I tried but ran out of patience to find a reputable source with better numbers, but this is just a reddit post after all. Some error is acceptable here. Below are the numbers: https://www.myersbriggs.org/my-mbti-personality-type/my-mbti-results/how-frequent-is-my-type.htm
Weights for our data
INFP = 4.4/26.5 = ~0.166 [Weight is less than 1, infp overrepresented] INFJ = 1.5/23.2 = ~0.065 [Seriously overrepresented] INTP = 3.3/13.2 = ~0.250 [overrepresented] etc...
You can see how the data might be skewed now, yes? I'd expect some leaning one way or another of course. I'd expect the data to show that Vegans had *some* sort of predominant personality type. However, between having only ~150 replies and data being sourced mostly from Reddit, we can expect some sort of artificial bias. This does not make the data any less interesting though. I only say this to set some expectations and help you draw your own conclusions.
Despite some limited scope, I do think this data can be indicative of underlying correlations (such as 'F' types taking priority over 'T' types in the data) as long as you take it all with a pinch of salt. It was a fun exercise and I hope you all gained something from it as well! The poll is still open, so I might come back again and update this post if I get more data. Also, let me know of any blatant errors I overlooked if you find them. Thank you for your participation!
I read somewhere that the more an INTJ experiences diverse Se oriented experiences, the more their Ni will expand and evolve. And I have seen this to be true myself. I know a few other fellow INTJs, and I experience deja vu whenever I see them make certain judgements or decisions that I have made in the past. Or I can see some INTJs who go down an unfavourable path (and sometimes stay stuck!) and I legitimately feel like That Could Have Been Me!, because the reasoning is very relatable to my own. It's a bit frightening. I had to adapt to very fast-changing, varying life experiences before I knew I was an INTJ, so I didn't have this INTJ template that would make me feel like I would have to fit into, which I see so many other INTJs feel the need to do. I had to learn how to interact with other types, even types diametrically opposite to me. And I learned A LoT from them as well :)) , I really appreciate their insights. xoxo So, what do you think about this theory that Many Diverse Experiences= Evolved Ni due to Inferior Se having more data to subconsciously sift through. What have been your own experiences?
2020.09.04 04:29 idesiremotivationI'm in doubt of my own type for months now, I would like to know what my real type is.
I've always been doubtful of my own type, and I've been scared that I have been typing myself wrong all this time. I scoured the internet for many tests, information on the cognitive functions, in hope that I would be able to find what really resonates with me. The way I would type this is that I would give bullet points for a certain question, and I would elaborate on them (it's for me to not get lost in typing, and for you all as well.). I'll get straight to the point to not waste your time. (Note: the tests I've taken typed me as INFP, four times, ENTP, 3 times, INTJ, 3 times, INTP, 2 times, and ENTJ, one time) "How old are you? What's your gender? Tell us a bit about yourself. -A minor -Rather not state gender I'm a planner. A fixer. Would rather try and fix problems of people than numerical issues, mainly because I get to study human behavior and I would like a challenge. I care for people, just not as much as my curiosities. I appreciate art, I even make art as a hobby. I have experience with countless people and I have seen many problems which I don't even know how to solve. All of these, I use as leverage for myself in the future, and it's easier to know that I can be able to fix these, when I am wise, and when I can comprehend these later on. I want to stock knowledge now so it would be easier for me to handle when I see those problems again. I'm more of a technical than a practical person. I like ideas. Brainstorming. Little details. I want to create reasons as to why a certain thing is like that, and why it should be improved in some way, shape or form. From our class chairman system to the banning system in my discord server, I would point out the flaws that seem to arise- when I take note of them. More often than not, I think of the future. Possible jobs, taxes, money, probabilities- and how to combat them. I like bringing up a challenge for myself. I get direct to the point when I'm not nervous. It's easier that way, so the conversation can be finished, and we can move on. Under pressure, on the other hand, is when I start to falter. I get nervous, angry, deadline-oriented, and just a mess of a wack person. "Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it?" -Disciplinarian. The phrase, "Have fun with discipline" works well in my home. -Christian upbringing. Never questioned it, until recently. I read stuff online and now I question how does this work- and why does it work. Isn't all religion some kind of cult, anyway? "If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed?" Depends on what I'm surrounded with. Gadgets? I'd be holed up in that weekend playing inside my room, and for possibly even more than that weekend until someone tells me to stop. Just by myself? Oh, it would be a doozy. I like ideas and all, but I would love sharing them with people to get their feedback. Would it be effective? Would it help? Is it new and fresh? I like to do things with people, mainly because I feel weak when I am alone- mentally. No challenge. "How curious are you? Do you have more ideas than you can execute? What are your curiosities about- is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate?" -Very curious. -Absolutely. I tend to think more than I do things. -Mix of both. I like to wonder how does systems in real life work, and how does my mind react to it, and can I be grouped into a certain category of people who think similarly as I do. I question the efficiency of certain schedules, and I want to rework them. Systems are what I like to fix the most, however. I also brainstorm with myself as to how can I improve my own art. Is it the elbows? Fingers? Head? Eyes? There's always something wrong in my art- and I want to perfect it. "Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it?" Somewhat. If I get to lead competent people, maybe even more competent than yours truly, I would really want to get to work on that team. If the match-ups are hopeless, I might as well drop everything into a sinkhole in Alabama and nope the heck outta there. If something doesn't work, then I'll try and fix it until everything works out. Would I be good at it? Pfft, I wouldn't. I'm not reliable, but I really want to try and be, but my motivation tends to poof away at the wrong moments. "Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art?" -Yes. -Mediocre. Absolutely mediocre. Human anatomy, backgrounds, painty style with watercolor pencils on a phone with only my fingers.. mediocre. I like character design though. Animations are fun. Never finish them, however. "How do you act when others request your help to do something(anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so?" -I'd help them to the best of my ability. -Helping others is a learning experience. One, it helps them out, because they (possibly) would get a solution, or a suggestion, to combat their problem. Two, it helps me out, because I tend to get many ideas, unique or not, and I can fine-tune them and actually put them to good use. Usually works out in the end. That's all for now because I have a quiz in a few minutes and my brain is fried [Continued] "What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them?" -Well, I'd certainly say that I'd learn from all three either way. -Sometimes I think too much about the past and the future. What did I do? What can I do about it now? What is there to see in the near future? How will I achieve my goal to be a master-jack-of-all-trades? Is there any way I can prevent tax evasion? The usual stuff. "Do you need logical consistency in your life?" -Yes. If things are consistent, then I'll be more sure of what data I have been presented with. It makes things easier for me in general. "What are your hobbies? Why do you like them?" -Drawing. -Reading. -Writing. -Correcting works of art. Criticism. -Gaming. -Thinking of witty words to say in a conversation. -Making puns. I like all of these because they try and challenge my skills. Maybe even bring out some potential in me. I'm a wordy person, really. "What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses?" -I tend to study ahead, and learn quickly. It would be better for me in general. It wouldn't hurt to get some quickie notes right as your class is starting, and the ongoing pandemic just makes online classes bow down in my favor. Really fun. I also like answering oral questions with research, right as the question is given. Makes me learn and understand even more. -I struggle with the louder environments. Very noisy. I can't focus if those meddling comedians keep throwing around markers, shoes, and erasers! -I like the first three. Memorisation is easier for me to comprehend. I also ace those (if i try). Logic? I love writing essays. It lets me flesh out my ideas. (unfortunately there's a sentence limit up to only five sentences which is sucky). Creativity is pretty fun too, I want to be able to put something unique on paper. Give it my own flair. Make use of my different writing styles. Be direct to the point while writing words that make it pop, like a brown gate decorated with golden arabesque designs. I make it clear and concise, however. How will anyone understand me if I put too much effort in it? "What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why?" -My words being misunderstood as some sort of insult. I can be tactless at times, especially when I try to dissipate fights about petty issues. I don't mean any harm, I just want things to be a bit more coordinated and peaceful. -Petty arguments. Situations that are way too wholesome and with way too many people for my taste. The first one bores me and irritates my brain, and the second one is too exhausting for me to comprehend. I love my friends, but sometimes they can be a tad bit too much on my nerves. -Anything regarding suicide jokes. Those are too much for all of us. Too much for me. I don't know how to stop suicidal tendencies, and it makes me uncomfortable because of some incidents that happened in my life. It's not funny. "What do the "highs" in your life look like?" -Feeling of content with peers -Finding people who I can tolerate -Acceptance of self -Learning from a mistake I've made way too often -Breakthroughs -Validations of things I haven't been sure of in my life These make me happy, and gives me some kind of sign that I do deserve something in my life. "What do the "lows" in your life look like?" -When my values have been trespassed -The things I know very well of are false -Realising that my friends are slightly more annoying and doesn't reach my standards The first one is like being told that your sexuality doesn't matter. It's a punch in the gut. A drowning, sickening feeling that pulls you closer to the deep end. The second one just makes me doubt my own competence because maybe I haven't researched well enough, or the sites I've seen are incorrect, it's painful. It's like a cut deep into your hamstring. The third tends to make my brain shut them out of my life, as I distance myself from them until it's too late to bring me back to what used to be. "Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about?" -Where did my friends go? -Did they get taken? -Do they have a place to sleep? -What should I do to get out of this room and back into the real world? -Is there anything that can make me draw on the blank walls? Maybe break a piece off a wall and carve something out? -And most importantly: why am I here? What did I do to deserve this? Do I just starve? Be forgotten? "How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it?" -It takes some time and thinking. -Rarely. If there is something wrong with the decision I made, or there are consequences, then I deal with them. I don't mind. If I am right, however, I smile at myself and know that I can depend on my instincts and judgement. "How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life?" -Doesn't take very long. -Important. They have a place in my brain, they matter, as much as my logic does. First, I tend to understand my emotions very quickly. Same goes for others. I know what they feel, despite even them not knowing it. I can describe those emotions using examples and my experience with them. Secondly, decisions are not made as black and white. They use both aspects, and I'd like to keep that balance. "Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why?" -Yes. -I used to do that a lot, but now only once every conversation, because there are some things I have to speak my mind about. I like to agree just for peace and quiet's sake, but I also like some good old fashioned arguments and debates. (oh nice i sound like an ENTP, thanks brain) "What is the ideal life, in your opinion?" -Have fun with discipline. -A life of understanding. It would be better if we knew how to manage our emotions and logic at the same time. Sounds easy, but it takes a lifetime to develop. Don't be afraid to not conform to stereotypes- they suck, even if they're hilarious in memes. Understanding yourself is the key to true happiness, and would be better to apply that understanding to others. This was fun. I wish I put more effort like this into my studies lmao. If you read it until here, then pog. I'm pretty happy that you took the time to read my silly little rant about me, myself, and I. It's nice to know that someone out there wants to read this kind of stuff. I just want to know more of myself to achieve that "ideal life". I would like perfection. I'd like all of your thoughts, so please comment what's my type, and why do you think that it's my type. Be respectful! Lastly, thank you for reading, have a good day!
2020.09.02 13:12 nemuiisaHelp me decide on a career based on pros and cons
I'm a textbook INTJ basically. I know I shouldn't base my career decisions on a half hour test, but last time I needed advice, the best answers I got were from this subreddit so I'm hoping it'll help me again. I have many interests (well, mainly science. any science). I'm trying to decide on a career, but I've yet to find one which will give me all I want. I know I'll have to compromise, but I can't decide what to give up. Basically, I want ability to travel salary on the higher end interesting work some free time to pursue other passions maybe not spend over a decade in school Data science or medicine are my top choices. I also would enjoy some type of research job in maybe biology or physics (maybe biophysics? astrobiology?). But as I said, they all have pros and cons. Medicine pros: I love biology and I find it super interesting Has the perfect mix of routine and spontaneity Will keep me learning If I study hard this year to earn a certain award, I can get into any med school in my country (Romania) for free and then move to another country where I'm paid really well with no debt Amazing career stability Medicine cons: So many years of study People. I'm not the most sociable or nice person and I sometimes have a hard time relating to people's emotions, which makes me seem cold. Not ideal for a doctor probably. Crazy hours, at least for the first decade or so I start earning money late in life I'll have to study in my country for the 6 years, and since I was super young all I've wanted was to escape this place asap. I could do a year abroad but that's still 5 years in this shithole country Might get burnt out because I like doing more things at once but idk if I'll have time for other passions in med school Afraid I'll end up hating a subject I love because of burn out I like the science behind medicine, not the part of treating people I'm already not the most mentally stable person and I know med school makes some students super depressed Data science pros: I like data and statistics, literally my life motto is "knowledge is power" Salary on the higher end as well, even thought nowhere near one of a doctor (unless I move to sillicon valley or something, but even then it's unlikely) Will start earning money sooner I've always liked the idea of having an office job (weird thing for a kid to aspire I guess) Can be applied to many different fields so I'll have variety in my work I can almost certainly get into an university abroad to study cs or data science Will give me time for other passions I could even go into bioinformatics to mix it with my interest in biology I can travel with this career and work in a multitude of countries without taking a bunch of exams to qualify Data science cons: I don't know for how long I'll be interested in programming I don't know how fulfilling this career will be While the field sounds super interesting, I grew up hating cs because my sister studied that and hated it, so I never even looked into it until recently. I've been studying C++ since middle school (mandatory informatics class) and while it was never my favourite thing, I like how it's logical and I'm good at it. I only recently started learning python and it's super fun, but once again, I don't know how long it'll keep me interested. Chemistry, maths and especially biology have been my favourite subjects for years so I know they're not just fleeting interests. I can't say the same about programming yet. Research pros: it's what I grew up wanting to do I love science Keeps me learning I get the fun part of medicine (the science) without the bad part (crazy hours and crazy patients) With this too I could easily get into uni to study abroad, and then work in different countries Research cons: Terrible pay from what I've seen online The idea of having to do a Phd makes my skin crawl and without one you can't really do anything So, in a nutshell: medicine is super interesting but makes me unable to travel and locks me in my country for another 6 years data science is something I'll probably be good at, gives me the ability to travel and pays well, but it's not something I'm very passionate about research sounds interesting and will keep me engaged but it's a lot of school and work for low salaries. this is not really a career I consider, but in an ideal world where money didn't matter so much, it's something I'd probably do (call me materialistic, but I simply can't see myself happy while struggling to pay bills or not letting my parents retire because I can't support myself) What do you guys think? Which career has better pros and cons? Any opinion is appreciated
2020.09.02 05:59 ByzantCrusaderTyping help for a depressive/nurorotic/nihilistic person
This is my comment from YouTube. I'm too lazy to change its format now. Dave, can I get a response from you? So I started my depression /nihilism from the age of 16. The thing is that I don't know if it's the isfp Fi-Ni loop or the intj Ni-Fi loop(I don't see any strong Se in myself). When I first felt that something was wrong with me, I projected that current state into the future and I tried to avoid it as much as possible. I concentrated my really low energy levels into understanding the illness itself and getting to a solution for it. My mode of operation was something like this: "Now I have low energy levels and I can't have the abundance and the resources of the german general Guderian that I have had before, but I can use my little resources in trying to develop effective strategies to counter this" . Exactly like what Erwin Rommel did in the African theater. So efficiency was a key word for overcoming this. And by efficiency I mean efficiency in shortening the time needed to be getting to the Ti critic truth(self growth-wisdom) with as low hassle as possible. And for exactly this reason I concentrated on two terms and from there I have made my own system which is actually starting to help me now. Although low energy levels sucks and concentrating only on your Fi needs sucks, I have found that I have actually started to like the things that you learn in this state. Another thing that did make me to want to get out of this quicker, was the fact that I hated to be a burden for others and I hated that my Fi needs were so selfish. And for this reason I always have felt a guilt for being the reason of suffering to others. I actually fell in the same trap as the guy in this video. I told to myself that I will wait and collect data and when I will be ready, then I will act. And this was the reason why nearly all of my life went downhill and I was really close in not being able to finish my first year of college. The thing is that I was even more stubborn than the guy in this video. Also, When I saw the simptoms of depression and that there was something wrong, I internalized this feeling for 3 years and I didn't told anyone about this. And after those years I have told my close one's but I still didn't want to get to a psychiatrist because I wanted to resolve my issues on my own and therefore I wanted to be developing an original and universal cure for depression with no external help. Basically I didn't wanted to share the credits with anyone. Now although I feel like shit, I have found out that in order for my system to work, I really need to start applying it in the real world and now I'm still waiting for results. I think that by being able to deflect suicidal thoughts with it, it's a really good first sign for it's effectiveness. And although I started to see that I relate to the Intj personality the most, after I have mistyped myself as INFP and INFJ, I still can't found my type. I have tried every single resource out there like: CS Joseph system, your system, cognitivepersonalitytheory system and all the other youtubers anecdotes and articles. Another note is that when I was searching for resources for my personality type, I embraced every source and I tried to verify it on my own. But, after little time, I have discovered that I needed to be listening only to the one's who know the subject very well. And that's how I have got to the 3 aftermentioned main sources. My confusion comes around when it comes to the archetype of the intjs being strong and indiferent. And although I relate to everything about Intjs, (that is besides the Te doing things which I haven't used it in practice, but only on my theory crafting, philosophy, and in testing my theories) I still don't see myself as not caring or being dangerous(although sometimes I would appear cold to my family). I would say that I'm selfish in the sense of focusing on my Fi needs being met so I can then be in a place of abundance and from there helping others as otherwise I would only cause them more pain because I wouldn't even have the energy to help myself let alone them. But I still wouldn't say that I'm dangerous. Although I would say that sometimes I can be dangerous and arrogant in a bithcy way but only when I feel threatened and I'm defending my values, principles, and independence. My entp friend would tell me that I'm not dangerous and I'm quite the opposite-very vulnerable and harmless. This may be from my experience of being bullied early on and therefore developing a more humble attitude but I still can't tell for sure if that's the reason. The thing that makes me think that intj is the best match, it is the fact that actually I was never at my fullest capacity(because of some problems in my family-divorce from when I was really young and from which I consider that I have inherited a weaker start than what others would have had) in order to have a clear perspective when comparing the types. And because of this reason I realised that I identified with only the bad traits of the INFP, ISFP, and INFJs and other sensor personality types(sensing subconscious because of intuitive ego?), but with no good one's. Also, I have considered the possibility of being an INFP or INTP and therefore my system and my inaction being the product of Ni critic rather than Ti critic. Still I'm not sure which it is. Also, here is a link with which I relate the most and it describes pretty well everything: https://mbtifiction-com.cdn.ampproject.org/v/s/mbtifiction.com/2015/10/23/intjs-and-trauma/amp/?amp_js_v=a3&_gsa=1&usqp=mq331AQFKAGwASA%3D#aoh=15994302261655&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&_tf=From%20%251%24s&share=https%3A%2F%2Fmbtifiction.com%2F2015%2F10%2F23%2Fintjs-and-trauma%2F Sorry for making such a long post, but I wanted to tackle every important point. So what's your opinion on this matter as an intj, Dave? Also, what you guys think about this based on CS system, Dave, and Harry one's? I will be waiting for answers. I'm thirsty for them!
Fellow suffering INTPs, Irrational INTJs get under my skin. I just had another one of those days where pointing out logical flaws in their data analysis is hopeless. While INTJs tend to have a lot of competency are often correct, once their mind is made up- often on subtly conflated ideological grounds - they are impervious to a more correct and sound way of looking at a problem or issue if it undermines their conviction. And I'm talking about scientific and technical matters, not fuzzy topics like politics or philosophy. All they expect is agreement and they will under challenge rationalize and obfuscate their "reasoning" to exhaustion, even when they turn into an obscurantist stubborn, arrogant crank.
Hi everyone, I've filled out the following questionnaire. Let me know what you think! All comments are appreciated. -----
1.How do you work? Why do people go to work? Are there any parameters that determine whether you can do work or not? What are they? In my opinion, I work tirelessly by learning more and accumulating more knowledge. I think some might not regard this as “actual” work since it is not for a job (as I am still a student). I work a lot, spending pretty much all of my time learning more because I want to help future generations to build more inventions that will help humanity as a whole. People go to work for different reasons. The most basic reason is to be able to pay for their physical needs, i.e. food, water, shelter. Another part is to fill their time with something to do, possibly because of boredom. The last one, and my favorite, is to serve others or a cause. I try not to stifle myself simply because I think I can’t do it, but in reality, I determine my ability to work based on my skills and competence on the task itself. 2. How do you determine the quality of work? How do you determine the quality of a purchase? Do you pay any attention to it? It depends. But I would say that the quality of work can be determined using both metrics and personal opinion, although objective evidence should trump personal feelings on work. It’s a bit different for purchases because it’s for yourself, but generally I determine the quality of a purchase if it’s useful to me. I do pay a lot of attention to the quality of work in general and frankly, it annoys me if it is done poorly for the sake of inclusion. For example, I was part of a youth council and we had an event that we needed to organize. I suggested that we do it in a hierarchical fashion so that delegation of responsibilities is more streamlined. But my proposal was rejected because it didn’t give equal opportunity to everyone. It really aggravated me because the event wouldn’t be as high quality (I was right, we didn’t really hit a lot of the quotas). But in hindsight, I was wrong to make that statement because the council was for a program devoted to inclusivity. 3. There is a professional next to you. How do you know they are a professional? How do you evaluate their skill? I try not to judge solely by how they present themselves. So I will truly know if they are a professional by their mastery of their skills. I evaluate their skills through testing in a scenario that emulates real life. If their work resulted in good outcomes, then I would regard them as a professional. 4. If you struggle to do something, how do you fix that? Do you know if your performance is better or worse than others? I try to learn it by myself. There are so many resources online so I can simply learn from them. If I need to compare my performance to others, then of course I would either ask them or ask for feedback from unbiased people and see the general trend. But why do I even need to know if I am doing better than others anyway? I don’t see the point in this unless my goals require me to move up the corporate ladder. My goals and dreams have nothing to do with that so I don’t need social comparison. Plus, I want to be more self-accepting, as I learn that everyone has very different paths in life.
How do you measure the success of a job? What standard do you use? Do you pay attention to it? When should you deviate from this standard?
It depends on the type of job, but generally I measure success through some sort of metric, as well as my own opinion of my job. I do pay attention to the success of a job because it tells me what I still need to do or what I can improve for future jobs. I only deviate from this standard if my gut feeling tells me otherwise. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? Mostly at ease. I am pretty comfortable with work and am aware of my own quality as I constantly strive to improve my work. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? They were straightforward for the most part but question 1 was a bit ambiguous in my opinion because “work” was undefined. I simply took it to be any activity that takes up most of a person’s waking hours and that serves a purpose that wasn’t just for fun. Were you confused at any point? I guess I was confused on question 4 because it seemed to imply social comparison, which doesn’t make sense as different people work in different ways. I guess if it meant something like a test, then of course, you’d know by your test scores. But later in life, it’s just so much more than just results and more about your own purpose and critical thinking. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? No. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? I think I wrote a bit too much on some of them, which I think can be seen from the length of my responses to the questions. -----
1.What is a whole? Can you identify its parts? Are the parts equivalent to the whole? A whole is the entirety of a concept or idea. Its parts can be identified in general by segmentation of its structure, but it might differ from person to person. In terms of ideas and thoughts, I think a whole is more than the sum of its parts because they interact with each other in a system, thus creating a newfound purpose in addition to their individual purposes. 2. What does "logical" mean? What is your understanding? Do you think that it correlates with the common view? How do you know you are being logical? Logical means to be guided by reason and objectivity, not being swayed by emotions. Not completely sure what the second question means, but I think my understanding is reflective of my own experiences and what I think is the reality of this world. Because of this, I think my understanding does correlate with the common view. I think I am being logical if I sense that my mind is calm and not emotional when thinking or making a decision. 3. What is hierarchy? Give examples of hierarchies. Do you need to follow it? Why or why not? Explain how hierarchy is used in a system you are familiar with. A hierarchy is a system in which the things of higher status are at the top, while ones with lower status are at the bottom (and are usually plentiful). For example, the world technically operates in a hierarchical fashion as there are classes between people. We have the rich at the top, the middle class in the middle, and the poor at the bottom. This forms a hierarchy based on wealth. Since most of the money tends to be concentrated in the hands of a few people, there are more people with less at the bottom. I don’t feel the need to follow it, and I don’t pay attention to hierarchies in general. A label dictating where I am respective to other beings doesn’t rule my life as there are other things that are much more important to me. 4. What is classification? How does classification work? Why is it needed and where is it applied? Give examples. Classification is segregating different points of data into clusters or categories. I think someone needs to go through each point and analyze it before deciding which class it falls under. It’s needed because there is an abundance of data and we need to make sense of them. One of the ways of understanding them is through classification, as we can draw trends and figures from these data. It is applied virtually anywhere, whether it be from machine learning to predict the class given an input, or in biology to classify the types of organisms. Classification gives us a way to organize the world around us. 5. Are your ideas consistent? How do you know they are consistent? How do you spot inconsistency in others' ideas? I don’t know if my ideas are consistent. Do they really have to be, though? I can’t think why this is useful unless it was for debate or for philosophy. I guess I spot inconsistency in others’ ideas if there are glaring contradictions in their thoughts and ideas. But I don’t pay too much attention to these so in real life I wouldn’t know. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? A bit of both. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? Most of them were not too straightforward for me. I actually had to think about it for a while before answering. Were you confused at any point? Questions 1, 2, and 5 were too vague for me. They were too ill-defined and subjective to actually be understood. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? A bit. I don’t really understand the point of painstakingly precise definitions. It’s not that I’m not good at creating a definition for a concept and applying it to other concepts, but rather I don’t see the point in it. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? No. -----
1.Can you press people? What methods do you use? How does it happen? I don’t really like pressing people, but I could if I wanted to. I usually use evidence and what the consequences would be if others don’t follow my way. Of course, it works well in my head but it comes out being too threatening as I sometimes won’t be too attentive to my own tone and body language. 2. How do you get what you want? What do you do if you have to work to get what you want? I work hard to get what I want, usually by myself. Success can’t be earned by just sitting around and doing nothing, although that’s not to say that working for the sake of working is productive either. So I try to plan what to do in the long-term so that I know what to do at the right time. Sometimes it requires me to work hard, which I am willing to do. 3. How do you deal with opposition? What methods do you use to defend your interests? I don’t like or actively seek confrontation but if needed, then yes, I will defend myself. Like question 1, I use evidence or the potential consequences to defend myself. Sometimes I will also use their weaknesses against them. If this question meant obstacles that obstruct my path to my goal, then I try not to be bothered by it and simply work past them, learning from those challenges if necessary. 4. When do you think it's ok to occupy someone's space? Do you recognize it? It’s okay to occupy someone’s space if they give consent. Not sure what the second question means but generally I wait for the other person’s signal that it is okay. 5. Do others think you are a strong-willed person? Do you think you have a strong will? I think I can present myself as a strong-willed and passionate person, so others definitely think that I can be forceful. I don’t really think of myself as a strong-willed person, though. Lately, I’ve been more aware of my own feelings so I think I’ve mellowed out to some degree. I used to be someone who relentlessly pursued their goals through the feeling of accomplishment, using any means necessary to reach my goals. This included constant adapting to other people because they would be helpful in the future, but now I’ve lost all desire because I don’t want to be fake anymore. All for the name of success or status? I don’t want to sell myself to those things. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? A bit strained because it reminded me of a husk of myself in the past. I want to move away from that version of myself that was a bit ruthless and heartless, and onto someone who lives life with purpose. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? A bit during question 4 because I don’t really know if it had talked about personal privacy and space, and what my reaction was to that. Were you confused at any point? Question 4, but the other questions were straightforward. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? No. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? No. -----
1.How do you satisfy your physical senses? What examples can you give? What physical experiences are you drawn to? I don’t really satisfy my physical senses. I tend to have an unhealthy relationship with my own body in the sense that I either don’t indulge it enough or indulge it too much with food, sensory experiences, etc. But sometimes I like simply tasting good food, eating out in a restaurant with a fancy ambience, or even wearing fancy clothes. Although, I don’t do this often and more so do it for the experience and feeling of power. 2. How do you find harmony with your environment? How do you build a harmonious environment? What happens if this harmony is disturbed? Not too sure on how to answer this question, but I guess I just find harmony within myself. I don’t seek harmony in my environment unless I somehow need it for my goals. I don’t really know how to answer this set of questions. 3. What does comfort mean to you? How do you create it? Comfort is being laid-back and being stable in life. I like to live comfortably, i.e. not worrying about physical needs since they are already covered financially, so I try to work and save up as much as possible for the future. I make sure that I have enough to eat and drink (although I end up not really nourishing myself properly). 4. How do you express yourself in your hobbies? How do you engage yourself with those things? I think I express my emotions in my more artistic hobbies. I don’t get a chance to express them to anyone as I tend to repress them so my stories tend to be on the darker side. I’m not sure whether this is related to my own personality or simply a result from my upbringing as my family tends to value members based on money or what you can offer them - weird because we’re not rich. I’ve had to fend for myself so all emotions, both negative and positive gets put out onto paper. I usually don’t realize that I feel bad until I actually get a chance to think about it and write about it. 5. Tell us how you'd design any room, house or an office. Do you do it yourself, or trust someone else to do it? Why? I’d design a room to my own liking, one that is mainly functional and is aimed to my own productivity. I would separate it into two sections: one for work, and the other for play. I would do it myself because I know myself best. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? Mostly, I felt strained. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? I filled out this section last because I really don’t know how to answer the questions in this section. Were you confused at any point? No, just didn’t know how to answer them. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? A bit. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? No. -----
1.Is it acceptable to express emotions in public? Give examples of inappropriate expression of emotions. For the most part, I think it’s not too acceptable to express emotions in public because I just think it can be too exuberant. For example, it’s a bit strange if someone laughs or smiles too much. I am also uncomfortable with others disclosing very personal situations to other people. I think that personal matters should be kept to oneself unless these issues are really bad, i.e. life-threatening. 2. How do you express your emotions? Can you tell how your expressions affect others in a positive or negative way? I don’t express my emotions unless it helps my goals and I want the other person to help me in the future. So I suppose, yes, I can tell how my expressions affect others if I am being conscious of how I present myself. But for the most part, I am pretty unaware of the emotional atmosphere, which leads me to unintentionally offending other people. 3. Are you able to change your demeanor in order to interact with your environment in a more or less suitable way? How do you determine what is suitable? As mentioned, I’m able to change my demeanor, although it doesn’t feel natural. So I only do this when necessary because I feel stifled if I adhere to social norms for an extended period of time. I usually gauge the social atmosphere through others’ actions. I am horrible at reading body language so the actions that I can read are usually very obvious emotional displays. 4. In what situations do you feel others' feelings? Can you give examples of when you wanted to improve the mood of others? I rarely feel others’ feelings. When I do, it feels more like it’s out of obligation rather than camaraderie. So I can’t think of an example as of now. 5. How do others' emotions affect you? How does your internal emotional state correlate or contrast with what you express? They don’t affect me very much unless they’re related to some sort of feedback on a project or are a response to my own competence. I still try to maintain harmony by diffusing the situation, but inside I really don’t feel whatever others feel and I’m more so thinking how to improve my actions to do better in the future. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? A bit strained because I’m not too sure how I handle social matters myself since what I experience inside is different from others. It’s more that I understand the purpose of being attentive to the social atmosphere than enjoying being part of it. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? I thought that they were straightforward; I just needed to reflect back on my experiences with other people. Were you confused at any point? No. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? No. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? No. -----
1.How can you tell how much emotional space there is between yourself and others? How can you affect this space? Yes, and it often feels very disjoint. I can’t tell whether it’s because I am uncomfortable with being vulnerable or because the people around me aren’t the best fit for me. I often feel extremely disconnected with others. The reason I’ve come up with is that I find their goals to be self-serving, not working to a greater goal that benefits the world. 2. How do you determine how much you like or dislike someone else? How does this affect your relationships? I determine how much I like or dislike someone by their goals and dreams. If it’s very cookie-cutter and seems dictated by society, then I tend to see them as being too conforming. I will usually dislike them. I think it has affected my relationships greatly as I am having trouble finding anyone whose goals and dreams serve the world. Perhaps it is also my distant nature and my unnecessarily high standards that affect my relationships. 3. How do you move from a distant relationship to a close one? What are the distinguishing characteristics of a close relationship? I guess through spending more time and experiences together. Having a close relationship entails trust and respect for each other, and allows for the exchange of ideas pertaining to each of their goals. 4. How do you know that you are a moral person? Where do you draw your morality from? Do you believe others should share your beliefs on what's moral? Why? I don’t really know whether I’m a moral person. Moral by what standard, anyway? Morality is too subjective to put people into neat boxes of being moral or immoral. My morality is drawn from myself, so some of my beliefs tend to be controversial in the eyes of society. I think that others should share my beliefs to some extent because I think they’re reflective of this world. My beliefs center around what I believe is the harshness and reality of this world, especially in relationships. I cannot reveal myself too much, otherwise someone can use my weaknesses against me. I’ve experienced way too many relationships (familial and platonic) where it is centered around mutual benefit, not love. This is why I feel like I am constantly on guard to protect myself, and why I do not understand the nature of love. I may sound edgy, but this is what I sincerely think. 5. Someone you care about is acting distant to you. How do you know when this attitude is a reflection of your relationship? When it’s not their usual behavior, I suppose. Although this might be a bit hard for me to notice since I like my relationships to allow for personal space. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? Mostly, I felt strained when answering these questions. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? I think I had to think a bit about these questions, especially the one about morality. I really have no idea about how “good” or “bad” I am so it was a bit difficult for me to answer. Were you confused at any point? Yes, at questions 4 and 5. I really had to think about them before answering. Question 5 was especially confusing because I don’t really get the dynamic of the relationship. I also don’t really know why I should intervene if someone is pulling away, since that means it’s probably over and there’s something wrong either with me or them. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? No, I liked the challenge of thinking through my emotions. I think for the most part, I kind of recognize my emotions and morals but I don’t actively think about them or use them for decision making. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? I had to stop myself from rambling on question 4. I feel like I was about to list my beliefs and how they’re fitting of my perspective of this world. -----
1.How can you tell someone has the potential to be a successful person? What qualities make a successful person and why? Usually their skills, drive, and ambition tells me that someone has the potential to be a successful person. It’s not enough for me for a person to only talk about or dream about success. So I would say that a successful person is driven and motivated, someone who actually puts in the work to their goals since that tells me that they truly are devoted to their goals to the point that they would fight as if their life depended on it. I don’t like people who talk themselves up to seem successful because their image of success is only an illusion. I have encountered these types of people and I always think, ‘stop talking and just do it! Their results will show how great they are, anyway.’ 2. Where would you start when looking for a new hobby? How do you find new opportunities and how do you choose which would be best? I look at my interests first, then I try it out before fully committing to the new hobby. I try to search resources for new opportunities, usually by using the Internet. If needed, I would also ask other people for any opportunities that they’ve heard. I weigh pros and cons on each opportunity, but I also listen to my gut feeling about it. 3. How do you interpret the following statement: "Ideas don't need to be feasible in order to be worthwhile." Do you agree or disagree, and why? Ideas don’t need to apply to the real world to be valuable ideas. I would tend to disagree since I find that ideas that can be applied to reality are inherently more valuable because their scope has a global or universal effect. Although many ideas are not immediately worthwhile in the eyes of current society, they might be useful in the future. There’s a big difference between a random thought about polka dot unicorns and the next rocket that could potentially transport people into space. 4. Describe your thought process when relating the following ideas: swimming, chicken, sciences. Do you think that others would draw the same or different connections? My first thought is confusion. How would you even relate such disparate ideas? It seems very random to me, but okay, let’s try relating them. I would say that both swimming and chicken can technically be part of the sciences. So swimming would be related to biology and physiology, while the chicken can be related to zoology and even food science. Since both ideas incorporate living beings, maybe all three ideas can coalesce into the branch of biology. I know nothing much about biology so I might be totally wrong about this. Maybe others could potentially wind up in the some conclusion, but I’m not sure. It seems so random to me. 5. How would you summarize the qualities that are essential to who you are? What kind of potential in you has yet to be actualized and why? I don’t really think of myself in terms of my qualities, just in terms of my own goals and dreams. I guess I am independent and I like to learn, but those are more of tools to help me achieve my goals. I think there’s a lot of potential in me to be a master in my own field because I still have time and energy to study. I still have so many opportunities to take and it’s still too early in my life to say that I don’t have any potential. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? Mostly at ease, although the last question was a bit difficult because I couldn’t articulate my thoughts properly. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? Definitely at question 4. I can’t get over how random it is! Were you confused at any point? I guess question 4, but not on the other questions. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? No. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? No. -----
1.How do people change? Can you describe how various events change people? Can others see those changes? People change a lot over time as a result of their experiences and reflections upon those experiences. I would say that their perspective really changes how the individual changes in their values and beliefs. Others might see those changes based on their own values and beliefs. Change isn’t inherently good or bad. Significant events such as marriage and death can really change people’s attitudes but I would say a timeline of smaller, more insignificant events can accumulate and change a person with equal force. Life isn’t isolated in clusters of events, after all, but rather is a continuous flow of events that shape people in the process. 2. How do you feel and experience time? Can time be wasted? How? I feel like time can be relative, that is, at times, it is very slow but other times, it flies quickly. I feel like time cannot be wasted as my time here on Earth is so short. I cannot investigate more about the world and learn more if I’m dead, can I? There is just so much to unravel and explore that every second is valuable. This is why I spend a lot of time learning. I want to help future generations through a discovery or theory that is timeless, useful, and universal, so that it can be applicable throughout time. Because of this, my goals basically span my entire life and I cannot waste it. 3. Is there anything that cannot be described with words? What is it? If so, how can we understand what it is if language does not work? There is so much that cannot be described with words, probably concepts that are beyond human thought and understanding. An example that I can think of is the core being of a person that is devoid of any labels and identities slapped on to feel some sort of uniqueness. It’s difficult to explain in words because to say that you are something means that you are attaching something to your identity. The core being just is, without any extensions or add-ons. I believe a person just knows instinctively what this is without materializing it through thought or language. There are still other concepts way beyond our understanding, and there may or may not be a way to put them into a form that we can comprehend. Perhaps I myself am unable to come up with another concept as I cannot materialize it with thoughts or words. 4. How do you anticipate events unfolding? How can you observe such unfoldments in your environment? I usually have a sequence of events in my head, usually drawing from likelihoods and observations that point towards that conclusion. It is usually correct if nothing changes suddenly in my environment. It all crumbles if something very unexpected happens. If this event pertains to me personally, then I can be quite distraught from any unexpected events as they are not accounted for; they throw off my plan. 5. In what situations is timing important? How do you know the time is right to act? How do you feel about waiting for the right moment? Timing is very important as it allows for smooth execution of plans, allowing the desired timeline to happen. I usually lay out a plan with some target dates, so most of the time, I execute that part of the plan when it’s the right time, then I wait for the next step. It’s a long process, and sometimes I can be antsy, but I know that it will be worth it at the very end. So waiting for the right moment is normal to me; it’s perfectly fine to wait and most times can be necessary to ensure good timing. Did some questions make you feel strained or at ease? Very much at ease, I thought this one was the easiest and most interesting section. Were the questions straightforward or did your mind go blank at any point? I thought they were very straightforward. Were you confused at any point? No. Did any questions make you lose interest and want to stop? No. Were there any questions you had to edit down because you wrotetoomuch? I had to stop myself from writing too much on all of them. ----- Thank you very much for reading through this questionnaire! I’d also like to add that by self-study, I think I am a LIE. If it helps, I am an INTJ in MBTI.
2020.08.21 11:23 SugarcubeDivaDifferences between ENFP and ESFP? (Esp. when you're a 7w6??)
So, what are the differences? I recently realized I'm an 18 yo female 7w6 in Enneagram with some mild social anxiety and shyness and that might have led to some mistypings as ESFP, along with some development of Se. I want to break down the differences because I've done everything possible, even took Sakinorva tests, talked to an INTJ that told me I'm a total ENFP, gathered constant data and researched and researched, yet I don't fit in the box. Must be a Ne dom thing, but I'd love some serious answers from you guys.
2020.08.19 23:52 rico6822I've Got A Strange Feeling This Server Needs to Get More Popular Somehow
The only thing that comes to my mind is to create a sub server that is anarchy but mbti themed. Just look how many members this reddit has. I think that this server could feature classes. Depending on the results from official MBTI test admins can give permanently a specific personality class that would have different attributes. ISTP- Upon getting pushed by a piston into a block they will make a huge jump due to "abuse of the game's physics engine". This passive trait is a reference to how bugs in video games can be used to do super jumps. ISTP is not protected in any way from fall damage. Consider landing in water or use a bucket. I originally planned them to have passive X-ray when they are under night vision effect but that was scrapped due to being overpowered. INTP- They can influence up to 3 alchemy potions at once with another potion to mix they're effects with alchemy stand but they're durations are combined together and than divided by 4. Composing a potion of speed I (8 minutes) with a potion of speed II is possible and will result in a potion of speed II. Same goes for other gags like that. According to my calculations it would take a lot of work to create a speed II potion that lasts more than 10 minutes but it's entirely possible. Minecraft is all about grind and being INTP is one of the most common traits on this server. The color of potions could be randomized to avoid bugs. Potions of instant effects can be combined together with no penalties. If one of the potions being combined at the time only features instant effects durations won't be summed up together and instead new duration will come from dividing the duration of second potion by 2. This effect can be achieved by simply restricting every non-INTP from putting other potions into the upper alchemy stand slot. ESTP- Instead of drinking milk like a normal person he throws it at other people. Has the same AoE range as a mixture. Applies temporarily faster drain of status effects. The bucket itself gets destroyed in the process. INTP has to be limited somehow. ESTP is actually being forced to constantly throw milk instead of drinking. The idea of ESTP throwing milk was inspired by a Scout from TF2 and how using the same method over and over of ruining someone's creation doesn't get old to some of them (I mean ESTP). INFP- Provides a single potion of blindness on every death with /suicide command if a level was 30 or above. Every 5 more levels one more potion is provided. Death on level 35 gives 2 potions and so on. The potions are directly spawned around INFP death point. They normally last 3 minutes by default and can be brewed to be throwable, extended or both. They generally act as if they were normal in-game potions. Could make good ally with ISTJ. ISTJ- Passive X-ray when under blindness effect to prevent mining from being overpowered. Could make good ally with INFP. Alternatively they could have a passive trait of seeing nicknames of invisible players. I guess ISTJ are supposted to be the cops by stereotypes. Invisibility is sometimes used in trolling to hide identity in some cases. Players with invisibility effect aren't common but when they show up this trait will be very useful. Works very well for detecting respawning INFJ. INTJ- All undead mobs are neutral towards you (not passive). That's because INTJ have general reputation of being "necromancers". Also because they dislike being annoyed by petty things but that would be overpowered if it included all mobs. So overpowered already that iron golems are agressive towards INTJ, just because. Healing potion hurts them while harm potion is healing them. ISFP- Can create iron golem spawn eggs with a custom recipe. Exactly same resources as when making an actual golem. Could be used to surprise INTJ when given to someone who is not ISFP. So much conspiracy! This trait is so not because I'm running out of ideas but having to use crafting table feels like to some as painting. ISFJ- Just pointing the middle of cursor at a creature (including players) gives detailed data about they're status effects. ESFJ- Passively charges bows and crossbows faster. A reference to being "daddy protector with a loaded shotgun". ENFP- Gains permanent strength III status effect when HP is about 5 or below. Loses all currently active status effects (including stength) upon getting health above 5. You know, bizzare emotions. ESFP- Moves 10% faster and jump higher by 1/4 block height (those aren't status effects) when at full health. ESTJ- Sweep attack causes slowness I for 10 seconds. ENTP- Literally under fire resistance effect all the time. Has a spawnpoint in nether and cannot gain a new one by sleeping or /sethome. Respawn anchor advised. Normally agressive nether mobs are neutral towards them (not passive). Includes wither. Excludes enderman due to coming from another dimension. Enderman spawns most often in nether on a warped forest biome. The same biome is considered to be the most peaceful one in nether. Do you see a pattern here? ENFJ- Used HANDHELD items never lose durability. A reference to how ENFJ are often SJW when it comes to ecology. ENTJ- Bare stick deals 9 damage. Cannot be enchanted with anything indeed but has very high attack speed. Overall higher DPS than netherite sword with maximum sharpness but cannot be enchanted. Very good when just starting with the server and well balanced later on as it cannot perform sweep attacks. There is also a half second damage immunity for hit enemies just like from any other regular damage sources. INFJ- For 3 minutes from respawning gets under the effect of all non-instant status effects that only have 1 level in unmodded non-cheat game, including weakness. No effects that can only be obtained in unmodded game by cheating. This is mostly for setting hidden respawn areas maybe under lava so attackers may get surprised but also attack power is nerfed. Buckets of lava could be tried. INFJ may get totally busted if there is ISTJ in raiding team. Maybe class system could be applied to other sub servers in they're own variants. Example: Guild server without classes, guild server with classes and cannot change them, guild server with classes that can be changed once per day.

I was curious after reading the post on ENFP about what they did for a job. The answers varied a lot. To be more inclusive/open ended you can put basically anything you do to pay the bills. Non intjs feel free to join in. Please also include your type. I work for the local utility company as an electrical engineer. I plan the electric transmission system so we can use more renewable energy. This involves running a computer simulation for 3 weeks - 3 months 24/7 for a single project. There is a lot of data to compute and that is why it takes so long. We consider millions of contingency events and how the grid will respond under each one. At the end of the simulation I review millions of lines of data in excel. Then I write a report in english to explain to leadership my recommendation on the project. Currently I am learning how to do dynamics simulations. Basically it is the same idea but the simulation is ran on the microsecond scale instead of just one point in time for each contingency event. This simulation takes 100 times as long. It's also a lot more fun to explain!! 😁
2020.08.14 20:13 rats420666I need help typing myself
How old are you? What's your gender? Give us a general description of yourself. I am a 14-year-old male living in the UK. I have poor education but everyone thinks I'm smart. Is there a medical diagnosis that impact your mental/comportamental stability somehow? Yes. I certainly have autism [diagnosed at 4], and very likely some eating disorder however currently undiagnosed. Though my appetite is normal, I am overly pedantic about calorie intake and exercise and religiously do at least 16,000 steps a day and try to keep my calorie intake under 1,700. Describe your upbringing. Did it have any kind of religious or structured influence? How did you respond to it? I had a very complicated and traumatic upbringing. Long story short: It was perfectly normal, growing up in a working-class nuclear, until I was five, when my father died. Straight after I lived, with my mother and brother, in the home of my maternal aunt and cousin, for three months. Afterwards, we got our own home and I switched school, and mother fell in love with a stepfather who I had a very toxic relationship with and eventually found abusive. It was like that until I was 12, when my homicidal intentions were leaked, and I was placed under the care of the local council and hated it because of the lack of consideration for my autonomy. As for any religious influence, I was brought up Roman Catholic, however I slowly outgrew Abrahamic religion and I currently identify as an atheist. What do you do as a job or as a career (if you have one)? Do you like it? Why or why not? I'm currently unemployed, for obvious reasons, and I would hate having any job. I used to want to be a musician or author so badly but the older I got and the more time went on, the less creative and artistic I was. Right now I'm considering a more scientific career path, I might be a psychologist/psychiatrist or pharmacologist, but I don't have much faith in going back to school and getting good grades because I'm locked in a really shitty baby school where I learn literally nothing and my social worker won't let me leave at all. If you had to spend an entire weekend by yourself, how would you feel? Would you feel lonely or refreshed? I'd feel absolutely great. I love my solitude. What is your relation with movement and your surroundings? For instance do you prefer a sport or outdoors event? If an outdoors event what is it? And why? If not what type of activities do you tend to engage i? I'm always attuned to my senses and what is going on around me. This has even resulted in problems such as needing utter silence to concentrate and focus on what I'm doing. I can't stand people talking in the background or cars wooshing by. I'm not the sporty type, however, as mentioned in this post, I walk a LOT each day. I don't enjoy walking. God, it can even be as tedious as fuck, but I do it to keep fit. How curious are you? Do you have more ideas then you can execute? What are your curiosities about? What are your ideas about - is it environmental or conceptual, and can you please elaborate? Fairly curious, but not overly. I'm hyper-interested in MBTI especially, further down the hierarchy I can list nutritional/health data and aesthetics. Would you enjoy taking on a leadership position? Do you think you would be good at it? What would your leadership style be? I honestly do not know if I would be a good leader. Sometimes when in a group, I can be loud and bossy and can have the power to change the topic or just shut everyone up. Are you coordinated? Why do you feel as if you are or are not? Do you enjoy working with your hands in some form? Describe your activity? I'm fairly coordinated most of the time, but I can be clumsy sometimes. I'm fine with working with my hands, but I'm not a kinaesthetic learner. I tend to learn by taking notes. Are you artistic? If yes, describe your art? If you are not particular artistic but can appreciate art please likewise describe what forums of art you enjoy. Please explain your answer. Kind of. I like making memes, and occasionally visual art and pieces of creative writing. I'm really drawn to the weirdcore/webcore aesthetic, and the music I like includes the Neighbourhood, Lana Del Rey, Grimes, Cage the Elephant, Arctic Monkeys, and MARINA. I always prefer melody and instrumentation over lyrics, and have a tendency to listen to the same old songs on repeat. What's your opinion about the past, present, and future? How do you deal with them? I tend to live in the moment, sometimes even making very stupid impulsive decisions, even though I know about the unpleasant consequences. I also like to reminisce about the past and idealise it, but daydream and envision the future. My perception of how the future will be, and what job I will have and where I will live in the future, changes all the time. How do you act when others request your help to do something (anything)? If you would decide to help them, why would you do so? I'm never really attentive to that sort of thing. Do you need logical consistency in your life? I don't really know, but I tend to stay away from things that I don't find logical. How important is efficiency and productivity to you? Not very important. I'm not the most productive out there, as a professional procrastinator. Do you control others, even if indirectly? How and why do you do that? No, not at all, as far as I'm aware. What are your hobbies? Why do you like them? My hobbies include listening to music, browsing the internet, journalling, watching Netflix, and definitely MBTI. What is your learning style? What kind of learning environments do you struggle with most? Why do you like/struggle with these learning styles? Do you prefer classes involving memorization, logic, creativity, or your physical senses? I need a quiet, solitary space to study, and I learn best by note-taking, repetition and memorisation. How good are you at strategizing? Do you easily break up projects into manageable tasks? Or do you have a tendency to wing projects and improvise as you go? I'm fairly good at planning things out and love doing it, but can also have a strong tendency to go with the flow and keep my options open. What's important to you and why? What's important to me is being skinny, having the internet, and having as much freedom as possible. What are your aspirations? Aspirations? I don't really have any. I used to be very optimistic and starry-eyed about my career - I dreamt of making a living as a musician or author in my teenage years, going to university in another country, and living in a nice house and having kids and being rich and everything - but now I can't be bothered. What are your fears? What makes you uncomfortable? What do you hate? Why? I'm scared of weight gain. I also have phobias of dogs and needles. What do the "highs" in your life look like? Staying up late, listening to music, chatting with online friends, writing in my journal really interesting questions I found on Pinterest. What do the "lows" in your life look like? Having to negotiate with the manager of the shitty group home I live in. I've got daddy issues. How attached are you to reality? Do you daydream often, or do you pay attention to what's around you? If you do daydream, are you aware of your surroundings while you do so? I'm very attached to reality, but while daydreaming, can detach, especially whilst listening to music. My daydreams tend to be about the future, or inventing characters and hypothetical scenarios. Imagine you are alone in a blank, empty room. There is nothing for you to do and no one to talk to. What do you think about? If this is an experiment that will be written about in a book that will go down in history and people will remember me. How long do you take to make an important decision? And do you change your mind once you've made it? I'm very indecisive. How long do you take to process your emotions? How important are emotions in your life? I'm mostly cold and emotionally detatched, however, can sometimes experience very intense emotions that may entirely change my train of thought and courses of action. My depressive episodes tend to be quite long, and I cure them by sleeping. Do you ever catch yourself agreeing with others just to appease them and keep the conversation going? How often? Why? Kind of, however, I'm also prone to forming my own opinion on something that probably differs from what most people think. Do you break rules often? Do you think authority should be challenged, or that they know better? If you do break rules, why would you? I have had a history of breaking the law. I completely lack a moral compass and have done things - such as trespassing or bicycle theft - with no remorse for others. I tend to distrust authority figures and would rather do my research and make my own judgement. What is the ideal life, in your opinion? My ideal life is living alone in a really scenic rural area [with wi-fi obviously] and/or one of my childhood homes, with pets [which I'm currently not allowed to have 😢] and having a beautiful living space. Honest to god, the manager of this prison-like home is so lazy he never brought me my bedroom furniture even though I constantly nagged him to and even ended up buying my own lamp out of my own pocket money. Other information
My first every 16Personalities result was INTP. After a few more times, I got INFP, ENFP and ISFP however I don't think I have Fi anywhere in my stack. Every time I take that same old test for the billionth time I get ESFP.
Someone who I chat with on Instagram, who claims to be an INTJ, tells me that I'm an INTP. However, I take what they're saying with a grain of salt and they're typing people based off stereotypes alone - if I hate small talk, then I'm not an xSFJ as one example.
I have took the Michael Colaz test a million times and on each and every one of them got very different results. However, ESTP and ENFJ were often quite high up on the list.
On the Enneagram I am totally all over the place. I keep on getting typed as a 7, but personally I think I might be a 4w3 or 3w4, or perhaps 9w8.
I once took an online Socionics test and got LSE [ESTj]
I think my first ever moral alignment test result was Neutral Evil but I could be wrong.
All over the internet I kept on clinging to the INTP label as it was my first ever result, but deep down I don't really think I'm an INTP but I kind of have this unconscious desire to be one.
I love to initiate conversations, use many social networking sites - Reddit, Twitter, Insta, Tumblr, and Quora - and end up talking to a lot of different people online, but barely have any actual friends.
2020.08.13 16:41 R-C-MDeep Dive into the INFJ Personality Type
I recently felt inspired to do my best to describe how I see the INFJ type functioning in detail. A lot of this comes from Michael Pierce, my personal favorite source for Jungian typology. First, I want to dispel a few myths about the functions. Fe is not empathy. Every human being is capable of empathy, it is a function of the amygdala and lymbic system. If you lack those you are dead… So what then is Fe? It is the cognitive process of placing a value or moral based judgment on external facts and objective data. To make this a bit less abstract, it decides that something is good or bad based on what it observes the masses valuing, or that it wishes to change the values of the masses. It typically revolves around communication or understanding. Technically it doesn’t need other people to make the judgment, but it does appear that this is the quickest and easiest way for it to function, so it often does. In order to come to a value based conclusion, emotion must be involved, which makes the Fe user usually more emotionally expressive. Although depending on enneagram type, the Fe user may not feel comfortable expressing their deepest emotions, so it often takes on a superficial emotional overtone. This can sometimes result in the criticism that Fe users are fake. Although the emotion that is expressed doesn’t necessarily have to be in-genuine, it just might not be everything that meets the eye. Ni is not “just knowing the answer”. Sure, Ni users often report not exactly knowing how they came to a conclusion, but it isn’t some psychic 6th sense. Ni is the process of boiling down perceptions, particularly Se perceptions into a web of interconnected concepts. It rejects the object in favor of the meaning behind the object, or as I like to say, “it finds the moral of the story”. Information given to it will be tested for how it relates to other information that it has already gathered. If it doesn’t fit the narrative, the information is rejected, and this is done on an unconscious level. Personally this often comes out as forgetting people’s names because someone’s name doesn’t actually tell me much about them as a person, so my mind automatically tosses what it perceives as useless irrelevant data because it hasn’t added to the narrative of understanding their motives and core personality. Of course this results in many awkward interactions…
Basics of the INFJ Function Stack
Being an Ni dominant type, this results in frequent withdrawing from the environment in effort to piece together their worldview, which takes time. This is also the source of the INFJ 1000 yard stare, similar to the INTJ death stare but typically a little warmer in appearance due to Fe. During this time, the INFJ is trying to make sense of something and piece things together, which is often an unconscious process. The result is often if you ask the INFJ what they are thinking about, they will have a hard time answering you because they aren’t fully aware themselves. They might have some idea from images that are floating around through their head, or movies playing out scenarios, but given how abstract and difficult to describe these tend to be, it is easier for the INFJ to simply avoid the question. With Ni on axis with Se, they tend to view the world as objectively observable. What they perceive should be what other people perceive and it is confusing to them when others don’t perceive the same thing. Most of their energy goes to making sense of this perception, but it is worth noting. This means that INFJs and other Ni-Se types can sometimes become over confident in their perception and by extension, their takeaway. INFJs can become dogmatic because of this, “I’ve seen the answer, just trust me and listen to me because I have the solution!!!” Of course a healthy INFJ will realize they have the potential of being wrong and approach things a little more skeptically. (side note, this also applies to INTJs, giving both Ni doms a tendency to come off arrogant). With Fe and Ti as their preferred judging functions, much of their experience revolves around communication. Ti develops their inner logical framework and Fe desires to express this framework to the world. Depending on the order of development, the INFJ with significantly more Fe will be more focused on the external emotional tones, creating a more outgoing and warm INFJ typically. Many INFJs seem to report developing their tertiary Ti first, however. I might personally argue that their Fe was developing alongside Ti, but remained more or less unconscious. But whatever the explanation may be, this results in a much more introverted INFJ that may not have perceived themselves as falling into the category of a “feeler” for much of their life. The well balanced INFJ will tend to have a highly logical inner framework that is expressed strategically to produce the greatest social impact possible, while analyzing the social structure currently to make sense of it. When analyzing their own emotions however, INFJs tend to over intellectualize them. This makes it important for the INFJ to have a trusted friend or individual to help them externalize their emotions so that their natural function stack can more easily handle them.
The Healthy INFJ:
They will carefully observe the social structure around them and wish to gently and tactfully point out and communicate flaws and potential issues that may arise. Piecing together a vast data bank of interconnected abstractions, they can sometimes quite accurately find the piece of information that doesn’t fit the narrative and therefore can predict what may go wrong given the mismatch. They will be careful to consider differing perspectives and not jump to conclusions too quickly, valuing the input from others and remaining patient with those who are not naturally as conclusive as the INFJ (looking at you, Ne users lol). They will learn to practice what they preach more often, leading by example rather than becoming arm chair critics. Developing their Se inferior makes them more prone to engaging in the action as well, rather than being reluctant or afraid to get involved. INFJs are also not naturally all that organized in their environment considering Te trickster, so the healthy INFJ learns to be more conscious in their efforts to keep things logically structured and organized so they can work alongside Te valuing types easier.
The Unhealthy INFJ:
They become critical and judgmental, jumping to conclusions and not having any doubt in their mind that their conclusion is right. Ignoring external input, they become arrogant and self righteous, often putting the blame on others for “not understanding me” when others are more often than not simply trying to point out something they believe the INFJ overlooked. Considering Se inferior, this is a real concern. Of course people are often not very good at being considerate when pointing these out, but the INFJ won’t be able to achieve their hopes of communicating their worldview and making an impact if they don’t learn to work with difficult people. They may become prone to neglecting one of their judging functions, causing either a flippant and unreliable INFJ who doesn’t have a logical framework to ground themselves and risking becoming fake and two faced as what is right simply depends on what is directly in front of them. Or they may over rely on Ti, creating what many call the Ni Ti loop where they retract from the world and become too introverted. Without grounding themselves in the objective environment, they may become paranoid or delusional. Their inner world becomes all they care about and attempts to draw them out of their heads are seen as intrusions. This INFJ is highly prone to depression. If you related to something said above, please note that there is a big difference between self observation and self criticism. Be honest with yourself, but do not criticize yourself. There may be reasons for neurotic behavior, but it doesn’t have to stay that way. Just self observe for a while, potentially through some form of meditation, and begin recognizing times when certain negative patterns begin to manifest in your life. Once you know when they show up, you can start finding ways to counter them. Anyways, I hope that helps people gain a greater understanding of the INFJ personality type as I understand it. Depending on which theory you subscribe to, things may differ a bit, which is fine and to be expected. I apologize if some if it is poorly worded or has typos, I wrote this out in one go and don’t have time for a thorough editing… I’d love to hear your thoughts in the comments!
2020.08.13 00:53 muddy120Ne isn’t about hunches but only Ni is? Flaws and misunderstanding Ne and Ni here? Tell me your thoughts.
I want to see what INTPs thought about this post I made. So I kind of lost respect for PracticalTyping and their function analysis and character typings. In my opinion I disagree a lot with their types and points even if I think sometimes they get things right at times. But types like Sasuke ESTJ, Naruto ESFP, Usopp INFP, Brook ISFP, Franky ENTP, Aizen INFJ, Robin INFJ, Neji INTJ, and Yusuke ESFP who’s actually ESTP and more I all disagree with and in my opinion think are all very inaccurate and misunderstandings of each of their characters, I think they mistyped Goku hard and their gonna in my opinion mistype Vegeta ESTJ it seems. In my opinion I type Goku ENFP and Vegeta ISTJ, which most people would agree with. I respect their opinions but I think their off a bit too many times to trust their typings all the time even if I agree sometimes like with Luffy, Nami, Zoro, Light Yagami, or Bakugou. But anyways this post is about the flaws in their understanding of the functions. Sometimes they explain them really well but sometimes I think certain things are off and wrong in my opinion and this is one of them. Ne isn’t about hunches and Ni is only, do you guys think this is true as Ne users? I think in general Ni is about hunches more often with how it works but Ne gets hunches as well often in its own way, it’s still intuition after all even if it’s an idea generator function. Ne still sees patterns and gets hunches based on its Si detailed data it obtains from the world and remembers and puts in its mind to remember for a new Ne idea for later and more patterns and connections to see in situation, or a Ne prediction to predict later on. Ne also looks and sees things behind the scenes which I think people agree on even if Ni is a bit more known for this as its a more focused function as a whole. What do you guys think about this as Ne users yourself? Is this a flawed concept or true? Is it nonsense or not? And Ne and Ni both care about the big picture I feel unlike again their rigid stance on its only Ni again. I’m curious what you guys think about this, I might share this with ENTPs as well to see what think and NPs in general since you guys use Ne everyday. Thanks for your input and support, can’t wait to see the comments on this one, heres the links down below: https://practicaltyping.com/2018/08/27/ixtp-ixfp-am-i-an-n-or-an-s/ https://practicaltyping.com/2019/07/02/intuitive-bias-heres-what-you-need-to-know/ https://practicaltyping.com/2020/02/24/7-differences-between-ne-and-ni-users/ https://practicaltyping.com/2019/03/26/exfp-extp-am-i-a-ne-dom-or-a-se-dom/ https://practicaltyping.com/2019/08/30/explaining-ni-tunnel-vision/
2020.08.12 15:45 69bASSistINTJ - all about one (functions, descriptions and examples)
I have found, some time ago, a post someone made about INTJs but it was vague to an extent so I added examples and have created more specific definitions for easier understanding of this type. This is a simplified version of all the existing definitions for functions and their behaviors from psychologists who made it (Jung, Beebe, Berens). Ego INTJs belong to the NT temperament, they are future-focused thinkers who think in abstract terms (focusing on What if not What is). Systematic - creating systems and viewing world as systems Pragmatic - focusing on what works not on what's right Abstract - Visualizing and thinking in theoretical terms Ni (introverted iNtuition) hero - that allows them to form a singular long term vision or plan (for oneself) which they want to make real. It's all about pattern recognition and symbology. It's primarily a perceiving function related to the unconscious (i.e. why INTJ = INTp (ILI) in socionics). Ni is all about knowing what do you want in your life, you know where you see yourself in X years into the future, what you want to achieve and accomplish with your life. It is also a form of a "gut feeling", knowing what or how will something happen even without understanding how do you know it. Ni constantly gives meaning to a big picture, connecting everything together. Your Ni will lead you, not over your obstacles, but straight through them, like a bullet piercing through every wall on its way. It is determined to achieve and get what it imagined and what it wants. You are focused on what you want to do, not what you should do. Te ( extroverted Thinking) parent - is all about referencing and categorizing other people's thoughts and infromation. It is all about status or credits even tho some may deny that they care about their status. It is also responsible for creating systems that can help them to further their future goals. It's a support function that allows them to plan and create steps for achieving a goal. INTJs are responsible with their thinking. Te likes to organize things, it simplifies things so others who understand/know less can follow and learn. It highly values usefulness, it relies on research, data and experts for external verification in order to come to conclusions. Te does all the research for Ni to find the best way to achieve its goals. Fi ( introverted Feeling) child - That's moral compass. It helps INTJs to consider the moral implications of their actions or visions. When immature it can lead to god complex. It's all about how I feel and is it valuable to me or not. Example: you value staying true to yourself no matter what and you will be honest with others even if it may put you in trouble. Fi child is purest, least corrupted, most unadulterated form of morality. Fi child consistently takes their attention and energy this leads to lack of emotional expression on their faces. Ni-Fi loop is like a fantasy ride where an INTJ creates a fictional story where he has/will have everything or has achieved everything which he lacks in reality, A realm of feel-good fantasies. Se (extroverted Sensing) inferior - It is a source of fear in INTJs where they become insecure on how they look or perform. It can cause performance anxiety. You can say this insecurity is a constant source of perfection-seeking. However once overcoming their fear INTJs can become amazing performers and outperform anyone. Example: you like to sing and you're doing it for a couple of years, you know you are great at it, however when it comes to singing in front of others or just someone Se inferior kicks in worrying if it is going to sound good, is the other person or people going to enjoy it, which leads to anxiety and fear and either performing poorly or not performing at all. They can actually materialize their plans. This allows them transition into their ESFP subconscious. Se inferior needs to have loyalty from Si. Se is also responsible for storing memories in physical objects (notes, mobile, people). INTJs tend to forget what they have learnt (if they don't practice it) but are able to learn multiple things cause Se represent high short term memory. Having a poor long memory we need constant physical reminders of tasks we need to do, like call or visit a doctor, take your medicine, etc. Se inferior is also why INxJs tend to door slam people cause all those memories they shared with those individuals become a source of pain. Now those individuals are reminders of pain. Hence cutting them off is the only way INTJs can forget. Se inferior combined with Si demon is why doorslam happens, completely cutting someone off like they never existed in the first place so you never have to see a physical statue like reminder of bad feelings and memories that tear you on the inside. Ignorance of Se in the long term can lead to occasional heavy indulgences - like excessive alcohol, overworking, etc. It is important to process what you feel and not just ignore it because eventually it will turn to grabbing anything that can help you forget the unpleasant experience. Creating healthy routines can help with that problem.
In this state you can see how an INTJ appears like an extrovert (ESFP). All introverts have extroverted subconscious and unconscious and vice versa. Children grow through their subconscious (inferior function) cause they are aspirational and haven't developed their superego which is the source of their sin nature (they do that in teenage). NTJs have amazing fashion sense while NTP's lack fashion sense (which comes from having Se in their trickster or demon functions) INTJ adult would be an ESFP as a child. Subconscious is the source of one's happiness. If you are able to transition into it you can be happy. They also develop humility. ESFP aspiring will focus on wants and needs of others, providing a pleasant experience for everyone around. In unhealthy transition INTJ would be highly arrogant and consistently worried about his status and how other people see him. Wishing that other people would think highly of him no matter what.
INTJs have ENTP unconscious, this allows them to become very good manipulators ( if they want to). They can put on a mask no one can detect if they are being fake. Because of Fi child no one suspects them of being immoral while they can play the game (most people are not intuitive). Ne (extroverted iNtuition) nemesis - worried about other people's intentions This is the source of INTJs paranoia because they are so afraid that other people might betray them they are constantly questioning other people's intentions. Often thinking they are conspiring against them, or that someone is trying to use them in some way. It can also be applied to different situations, constantly thinking WHAT IF this or that happens or WHAT IF i say this or that, going through all possibilities in that scenario. It's all about what could go wrong. Ti ( introverted Thinking) critic - INTJs are consistently criticizing and verifying their beliefs (Te-Ti cognitive orbit). In fact they cannot calm unless they know that what they are thinking is correct or not. So they go to multiple sources to verify their beliefs. This is where correcting others comes from, correcting their information or what are they saying, giving them the right information from the verified sources. Ti critic does not stand wrong information. Fe (extroverted Feeling) trickster - unawareness of social norms. INTJs struggle fitting into social world. They don't know how other people feel. Neither they care in most cases, cause they are so focused on keeping themselves moral (Fi child). Fe trickster is also the reason why an INTJ may make someone feel uncomfortable because he is unaware of how it will make someone feel like. INTJ can develop their Fe through their parent function, which will make an INTJ appear more warm and caring. Si (introverted Sensing) demon - Source of their hatred. This linked to Se inferior via orbit. If you betray INTJs or do something that makes them fail in front of others (humiliation). They will hold it to their heart and seek revenge. They are uncomfortable talking about their past. An unhealthy INTJ will do whatever is on his way to seek revenge for those or some who betrayed him, he can be so vengeful that he will destroy everything on his way to bring the one who wronged him to justice even if it means losing job, destroying family relationships, friendships etc. This is why villains in movies and comics are often typed as INTJs, for their determination of vengeance and doing whatever it takes to achieve it. Si demon is also a reason why you may find yourself ignoring your basic bodily functions, such as drinking, eating or going to toilet because you will be so focused on thinking or doing something that your mind will completely ignore basic human functions. You may find yourself sitting in uncomfortable positions for example which may lead to hurting you without even realizing. This is why it is important to create healthy systems for oneself. Through demon function they transitions into ISFJ superego ISFJ super-ego There are only two scenarios in this case (1) Social alienation of the target (2) Long term revenge INTJs are finishers type. They need to finish what they have started otherwise they cannot feel good. In fact they feel shit if they don't complete the task they undertaken. They are triple movement - their ego, subconscious and unconscious are all movement type. That is they are all focused on completing the task as fast as possible. In this case they may either try doing multiple times (referring to different methods) and create a master process that can be applied to any system. They also speak fast, walk fast, drive fast and try to do things as fast as they can, like cleaning, cooking, etc. They are direct (prefer to talk in minimal words in precise terms, can appear commanding) and responding (prefer if another person 'initiates a conversation and they are the one responding, it makes them feel powerful). This is why some may dislike INTJs and think they are boring for they will give short and direct answers. However if you talk about a topic that interest an INTJ they can go on about it for hours with a lot of passion! INTJs are also considered one of the funniest types to be around with when they are ESFP aspiring.

I think in general Ni is about hunches more often with how it works but Ne gets hunches as well often in its own way, it’s still intuition after all even if it’s an idea generator function. Ne still sees patterns and gets hunches based on its Si detailed data it obtains from the world and remembers and puts in its mind to remember for a new Ne idea for later and more patterns and connections to see in situation, or a Ne prediction to predict later on. Ne also looks and sees things behind the scenes which I think people agree on even if Ni is a bit more known for this as its a more focused function as a whole. What do you guys think about this as Ne users yourself? Is this a flawed concept or true? Is it nonsense or not? And Ne and Ni both care about the big picture I feel unlike again their rigid stance on its only Ni again. I’m curious what you guys think about this, I might share this with ENTPs as well to see what think and NPs in general since you guys use Ne everyday.

2020.08.07 20:20 garlic12Monthly Identity Crisis // Wondering if I'm not an INFJ again.
Hi everyone. Sorry for the long post. This happens like once a month, but I am once again questioning if I'm actually an INFJ. No one ever seems to be convinced when I tell them. Well, by no one, I mean like 3 people over my entire life, but I can't shake the feeling. I relate most to being an INFJ. But some people say that they see me as an INFP. And some people say that they see me as an INTJ. And more recently people have said that they see me as an INTP. I personally find INFPs too dreamy and passive and INTx too cold and mean. Some details about me: My best friends are an INTJ (M) and an ENFP (F). I have two INTP friends and one ENTP friend, but we don't get along as well. I really dislike it when Thinkers blame people that they hurt for having feelings. Then again, I dislike it when Feelers use their feelings to drive every decision without thinking it through first. I relate to characters like Ted Mosby (How I Met Your Mother), Abed Nadir (Community), Chidi Anagonye (The Good Place), Bruce Banner (Hulk), Matt Murdock (Daredevil), and Steve Rogers (Captain America). I'm an Enneagram 1. My biggest drive in life is to understand people. I'm interested in Movies, Philosophy, Ethics, Law, Politics, and Psychology. What I look for in others is what my therapist calls "authenticity" but it's hard for me to see. A Case for all of the Cognitive Functions: Ni: Everything that I take in is assessed in a framework of interconnection. I internalize stimuli, translate it into my own little language, and then decide what it means. Ne: I am an idea person. I am happiest when I am coming up with new ventures. That being said, I am usually a barren desert when it comes to ideas, up until the point when my subconscious bursts with an almost fully formed one. Maybe this is Ni. Si: I think a lot about regret and remorse. I believe that much of what makes someone a good person is guilt for their actions. Catholic complex. Se: I have no argument for this. I am absolutely awful at Se. I bruise my shins on the daily from not noticing tables. I run into trees face first and get thorns on my cheeks. I get lost when I decide to walk somewhere alone because I realize that I have never once actually looked at the surroundings when I'm in the car. I am always more in my own head than the world around me. Fi: I care a lot about ethics. This could be perceived as having a very strict moral code. Though, to be honest, I do not think I use Fi. I am, for the most part, wandering around life looking for reasoning and input from other people on what to do and what will make my society happy with me. I need approval from external sources to feel good, and though I crave righteousness, I will only ever feel it with an army behind me, not in front of me. Fe: I passively absorb emotions from everyone around me. Otherwise, no emotions come out. I prefer to listen, and my favorite passtime is to text people that I have met but not spoken to and slowly uncover what makes them tick through conversation. People are always great, but they are soooo much better once you know their pain. That sounds wrong, but you know what I mean. If you are hurting, I like you more. That being said, if you slam a book on the table or do anything remotely tense, suddenly I retaliate and get on edge without thinking. Ti: I LOVE DATA. I have been obsessed with Google Sheets / Microsoft Excel since I was a kid and love collecting information, playing around with the functions, and turning it into graphs. I also send out — admittedly too many — surveys in Google Forms. I just love finding out things about other people and cataloguing it in a neat little chart. Te: Honestly I don't know much about Te. I may have just described it when I was trying to make a case for Ti. I sort of see Te as the same sort of logic-based decision making but like controlling others. And I'm definitely not outspoken about logic. The only time that you will ever see me outspoken is when I am defending someone else, and that's usually using feeling. Even then, I'm more prone to a strongly written anonymous letter to who is in charge threatening to destroy their institution from the ground up if they do not serve justice. But like, in group projects?? Nah. I will come up with creative ideas, but if someone else says no, then that's how it is.
2020.08.07 16:05 AspINTPINTP trying to convey moral support to INTJ: help?
Hi! INTP here. May I ask you INTJs (especially guys) some insight and/or advice? So, I have one INTJ colleague/friend who has always been there for me since I began working in the team. We appreciate each other, but it's sometimes a bit tricky to communicate: I'm also an Aspie and lack cognitive empathy, but I'm good at reading body language (and mainly use this skill to navigate human interactions), he on the other side is bad at controlling his body language to hide his emotions and counts on the other's cognitive empathy to avoid talking about them. Most of the time, fortunately, we talk about things that do not require much of those skills. But when it happens, I really struggle when I see his emotional distress conveyed through body language (feeling lost, scared, or even like "no one cares, so why bother?"), especially while he's stating something about his physical/mental state in the most factual way. I know he's been emotionally neglected since childhood (common friends warned me it's a touchy subject so I didn't screw up, basically). I guess he's trying to reach out but at the same time terrified. I'd like to find ways to show him I do care while respecting his boundaries... Any advice? Things you'd appreciate if you were him? In true INTP fashion, I'm trying to collect more data to determine my next course of action... Thanks!

2020.08.06 17:59 Ouss_GarciaINTJ pictures: conspiracy theory to steal our data?
Fellow INTJ, I know you think that you finally found a safe place where you can share your feelings and your childhood pictures. IT'S NOT.. it's an elaborate plan by governments (definitely the NSA and CIA are behind this) to steal our pictures and emotions from us (they know how reluctant are we with emotions and pictures.. so they started a campaign to collect our data). It's a trap !!! Just kidding!!! 🤣🤣🤣🤣🤣 I like your death stare,guys Enjoy!
